About the Presentation

In just a few years, the Lean Startup movement has gained influence by promoting a powerful but simple agile product management toolset—one that complements agile software development approaches such as Scrum and kanban. Raj Indugula explores the tools and techniques product owners at startup companies and others are employing today for project visioning, experimental design, evaluating new feature impact, prototyping, split testing, and gaining early customer feedback. With case studies, Raj illustrates how these approaches have been applied on large and small projects. Because the Scrum Product Owner role is often oversimplified yet difficult to execute well, these techniques have been welcomed in organizations ranging from Silicon Valley startups to the US government and its contractors.

Raj Indugula heads the Technology practice at LitheSpeed, where he drives product development initiatives using Lean + Agile techniques, provides training and mentoring to organizations transitioning to Agile, and to those looking to deepen their Agile adoption with disciplined engineering practices.  With over 17 years of experience in crafting software systems for a diverse client sector that includes both public and private entities, over the past 10 years, he has led the implementation of multiple enterprise-scale software systems using Scrum and Extreme Programming practices.

A staunch advocate of customer-focused product development brought to bear with a pragmatic blend of practices rooted in Agile values, he eschews dogma and one-size fits all solutions and strongly believes that processes and tools are only a means to an end, not the end in itself. He has an M.S. in Computer Science and is currently engaged with a large Agile transformation initiative in the federal space.

About the PM Industry Insights

PM Industry Insights is PMIWDC's workshop series that addresses the practical aspects of Project Management.

These sessions are to provide you with insights on what is going on in the local industry so you can learn from it. This discussion-based session will include presentations on tools, industry panels, interviews with industry experts, workshops, etc. The target presenters will be individuals from PMO’s, university professors, consultants, etc. 

Both PM Industry Insights and the monthly dinner meeting are worth 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU) each to certified PMPs. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.
